Next comes the engine, 3D printed by Dekno models. No need to comment the level of detail compared to the stock piece. Some extra work required for the exhaust collector ring and pipe. I will suggest dekno to include this part in the future.

No, not something special, it is documented by a photograph. Most probably the ailerons are spares taken from another aircraft.

Can I ask what the block is doing in photo8. Is it holding the vacuform so you can mask and paint before cutting?

Dave Flitton
Massive work that turned out to be a nice gem
26. August 2020, 15:46
Elias Korompilis
Thanks everybody!
@ Gary Kitchen: no, it is the next step right after photo 5, the transparency is heated and pressed against the home made mold made from miliput and plasticard. Old fashioned "press forming". Had to do it because the MkVI canopy is different to the MkIII, and the thin part was necessary so the frame structure could fit inside.
The doors are made from the same material, .005in transparent evergreen sheet. Canopy framing is aluminum color decal cut to strips.

Hello again, Elias....

Can you answer a rigging question? It seems clear what has to happen with lines coming to and from wings...the wings would be drilled through and repaired...simple enough, the holes are tiny.

But, what do you do on a connection to a fuselage that has no way to get to the other side to pull a line through?

Here is an example:

I-153 WWII China Guomindang AF Fighter (ICM 72076, 1:72)

1:72 I-153 WWII China Guomindang AF Fighter (ICM 72076)
 


Note that the wing attachments are simple enough, but the lines then terminate at the fuselage, not another wing.

Do you have a suggestion in that case?

Thanks again for the help!

Choppa Nutta

2. July 2020, 10:32
Erik De Smet
Drill a hole in the fuselage, glue the rigging line in it and work on from there to the Wings.
2. July 2020, 11:20
Spanjaard
actually you do not need to make the holes though the wings... drill a hole that does not go through, dab a tiny bit of CA at the end of the thread, and place it in the hole. works specially well if you use flexible rigging, since you can push it wait a few second for glue to cure and let it go.
you can also cut a tiny piece of wire and glue it to the end of the thread with CA, remove any excess (thread adn/of wire). add glue to the wire and stick it in the hole.
